      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We’re sorry to hear that your situation has gotten to the point where you feel like you need to leave. We would be happy to talk to you about running away and what that could look like and how to do it safely as well as other options you may have. To answer your question, the cops will ask why you ran away, but in most cases they will return you back home regardless of what you tell them. We can’t say for sure whether or not you would be able to live with your dad, but if you want to talk more about your situation then we could give you a better idea of what could happen. If you are interested in having that conversation or talking about what other options there might be, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

      Take care,
      NRS

      Hi there,

      Thanks for reaching out to NRS. This is a really great questions to ask and run away laws can get a bit confusing. Generally speaking, if you are under the age of 18 in most states, (21 for Mississippi and 19 in Alabama/Nebraska) and you leave home without permission then your legal guardian (your parent) can report you as a runaway. Running away is not illegal, but your mom can have the police return you home.

      We are here 24/7 to be a support for you while you deal with this challenging situation. You can reach out by phone or chat anytime if you would like to talk more about your situation.

      Be safe,
      NRS
